If you haven’t caught on to the wonder that is Drones yet, check out the trailer and synopsis below!

Brian Dilks (Jonathan Woodward) is an Office Drone. He spends his days at OmniLink in comforting monotony: facilitating the movement of product around the country, faxing, copying, joking with his best friend, Clark (Samm Levine), and harmlessly flirting with fellow cubicle-mate, Amy (Angela Bettis). But how well does anyone really know the people they work with? When Brian discovers an improbable secret about his best friend, everything in Brian’s world changes and his safe life of workplace detachment is no longer an option. Shocked out of his mind-numbing routine by this new discovery, Brian throws himself into a star-crossed romance with Amy–yet, like next-quarter’s sales or intergalactic war, close encounters of the office kind is uncertain business.
